Connecting the Dots – Online Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion
Watch the ‘Connecting the Dots’ film and join the panel discussion about youth mental health.
What would it take to shift the dial on young people’s mental health?
Join us in this important conversation in 2022.
Mental health charities are doing it tough. The climate is one of concern, fear and HOPE for a better 2022 for young people. Social isolation, loneliness and unemployment are the top risks for suicide and no thanks to COVID-19, our community has lost many of the natural protective factors for young people.
Do you remember what it was like to have your parents say to you “We have given you so much…you should be happy!”… I don’t understand… Why aren’t you happy?”
Connecting the Dots is the first feature documentary of its kind to offer a raw and intimate look at youth mental health from a global perspective. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices from around the world breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health. Through highly cinematic and character driven storytelling.
Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our young leaders are speaking up. It’s time to listen.
We welcome you to join us for this free online screening of Connecting the Dots by award winning Canadian director, Noemi Weis with a panel discussion scheduled for Thursday 3rd March, 12:00pm AEST.
